Samsung Galaxy S23 FE (Fan Edition) could be in the works. The South Korean company has recently launched the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra in multiple markets. The rumoured Galaxy S23 FE will be an affordable offering that could be positioned lower than the Galaxy S23.

The Galaxy S23 FE will likely succeed the Galaxy S21 FE, which came out in India in January 2022. This indicates that the Galaxy S23 FE will arrive instead of the Galaxy S22 FE, which has been reportedly cancelled as per previous reports. Here is a look at what to expect from the S23 FE:

The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor will power the Galaxy S23 FE, according to tipster OreXda. For those who don’t know, it is the next best Qualcomm chip after the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The OnePlus 11R, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are some of the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1-powered devices available in the Indian market.

Samsung is yet to confirm the existence of an FE model. However, a report by the South Korean publication Daily Hankooki states that the Galaxy S23 FE will debut in August or September this year. While the other specs of the S23 FE, it is expected to arrive as a toned-down version of the Galaxy S23 / S23+.

The Galaxy S23 starts at Rs 74,999. Hence, there is a possibility that the S23 FE may cost around Rs 55,000 to Rs 60,000 when it arrives in India.

In related news, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy A34 and Galaxy A54 in the Indian market in March. Reports have revealed that it has no plans to release the Galaxy A74, which was expected to arrive as the Galaxy A73, which debuted last year as Samsung’s first A-series phone with a 108-megapixel primary camera. Hence, it appears that the Galaxy S23 FE could be positioned between the Galaxy A54 and the Galaxy S23.
